Extreme Weather

Rhodes' extreme weather procedures provide for making decisions to close or to delay opening the College when weather conditions warrant. These procedures will be used only if Rhodes closes or if its schedule is altered. If the College is closed or opening is delayed, all Physical Plant and Campus Safety personnel should contact their supervisors for information about their schedules.


A message will be left in a voice-mail box, which can be accessed by all students, faculty, and staff.  The number for that weather line is 843-3943.

The decision will be communicated to the following local media stations, which will announce the decision. Please do not call them for closing or opening information.
